Godot Wild Jam was born out of a desire to see more games made with the Godot Engine. It has grown to be the world’s largest Godot Engine based game jam, running for 9 days every month. I chose 9 days so as to be more accommodating to people maintaining a job, family, etc. Providing two full weekends to work on a project without the pressure of everything has provided stable and healthy growth for our community. My goal with the jam is to foster a place of learning while striving to be more inclusive and diverse for the games industry in general. I also want to be a vocal advocate for accessibility in games and have recently included it as a ranked category within the jam. I hope other jams will follow suit.
The jam has successfully ran for 3+ years with a Discord server of 4,000+ people in it. It is organized, moderated, and maintained by myself and a couple of hand picked moderators.
